Anyone else use the software RadioSure! ?

Awesome little streaming player. I copied the program directory into my Dropbox folder and can listen at home or at work. There are at least 3 stations that stream only Grateful Dead, 2 of them at 128. The program lets you capture the mp3s (also you can setup to dump them straight into Dropbox) while you listen too, and set bookmarks, use a few EQ presets, there are some free skins too.

I have NO affiliation with this program, but it is awesome and easy to setup and use. you could run it from a pendrive, too.

Right now, 'Grateful Day' is streaming the closing sets from 12/31/78. Sounds great.

Some of the stations I like:

Grateful Day (they tend to play whole sets, sometimes whole concerts, and they seem to play HQ sources)

RadioIO Dead (tracks/jams, but not whole shows, plus commercials every few songs, but they play some neat stuff)

gdradio.net plays things more like Grateful Day (whole shows or sets), but they only stream at 64kbps, so it's a little tinny on a full stereo system, but suits the bill thru work/computer speakers)

in the past I was able to tune into WJOE Grateful Dead Radio, but it hasn't seemed to be online in a while.

RadioIO Classic Rock (GD albums get airplay!)

RadioIO 70's Rock (classic FM sounds!)

Nugs.net (newer and classic jamband music, like Lotus, STS9, moe., Phish, and others)

Beyond the Beat Generation (you won't find a more extensive collection of 7" garage music from 65-68 streaming online. absolutely incredible collection of 60s garage, over 100 versions of GLORIA!!)

Psychedelic Jukebox (drippy, sweet candy psychedelia from mid/late 60s)


Any other cool finds??

Can you elaborate on putting it into your Dropbox? Did you install on your PC first? Can I just put it straight to Dropbox? Thanks!

Yes, I first installed it on my harddrive at home.

I then copied the RadioSure folder from the Programs folder (I'm on Windows) and pasted it into the root level of my Dropbox folder that shows up in My Documents when you install the Dropbox desktop app. I assume you could upload it thru the web interface for Dropbox but I literally just copy/pasted it right in there into the My Documents/Dropbox folder.

I then uninstalled it from my home PC.

Then, I opened my dropbox folder in My Documents, opened the RadioSure folder and rightclicked on the RadioSure.exe file and hit 'Send to Desktop (create shortcut).

That lets me fire it up from my desktop at home. I repeat that process at work for the shortcut.

All your favs and stations and what you just listened to, etc, are kept in an xml file that resides on dropbox, so it always keeps up to date with what you are doing.

that help?

Thanks, Cortelle.

I have a laptop with a 2.1 Altec sys in my garage and this will be perfect for putting on and just going with whatever they choose—sometimes you just want someone else to make the decision!

I noticed Radiosure also has the Russian Pink Floyd channel that I gravitate to in the mornings on my Livio that's in the kitchen---so that's a definite bonuse.

I'm curious to see how the record function works.

Thanks, again.
Enjoy,

yeah, cool.

The record works better for somethings than others. I think it has to do with how sloppily they tag beginnings and endings of songs, but I could be wrong.

I like that you can hit record and then keep listening, too.

Forum tidbit #9. When you begin a thread and then later edit it, the whole thread (responses included) jumps to the top of the forum page. On a small thread this probably will cause no consternation, but if it's a big one you might get flack for squashing newer threads. If you post a response to your thread it doesn't jump.
